Learn More About Getting Your Permanent Makeup Lifted Away with PMU Removal in Snohomish County Including Seattle, Everett and Lynnwood

While many of our clients enjoy their permanent makeup application and lash extension care for a long time, we are also able to assist those who are interested in permanent makeup removal. We adhere to the same high standards of service we use for lash extensions and lash lifts as well as powder brows, lip blush and permanent eyeliner applications, and we work just as hard to deliver the precision PMU removal results you are looking for.

What kind of makeup does it remove?

If you have decided you no longer want your lip blush, permanent eyeliner or powder brows, you may be a candidate for permanent makeup removal using saline. Perhaps you no longer want to keep up with appointments for lash and brow care, lip blush care or eyeliner services. Or maybe your tattoos have started to fade after several years and the coverage is now uneven. No matter your reasons, a consultation with one of our PMU expert technicians can guide your informed decision-making.

Does it hurt?

Everyone has a different pain tolerance, but typically there tends to be more pain associated with removal than there is with the application of permanent or semi-permanent makeup. We use a topical anesthetic before and during your treatment to help relieve pain and discomfort. We recommend that you use Tylenol or other non-aspirin, over-the-counter pain reliever an hour before the procedure to help reduce swelling and pain.

Who shouldn’t do saline removal?

Saline removal of your permanent or semi-permanent make up is typically safe for all skin types. However, it is not advised for clients for whom the following applies:

  • Pregnant or nursing
  • On blood thinners (written approval from a physician is required)
  • Diabetic
  • Undergoing Chemotherapy (written approval from a physician is required)
  • Viral infections and/or diseases
  • Wearing a pacemaker or having a major heart problem
  • Organ transplant recipient
  • Skin irritations near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.).
  • Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
  • Using Accutane within the past year
  • If you have questions or concerns about whether you’re a candidate for saline removal of your makeup, such as permanent eyeliner, please contact us for a free consultation.
What product do you use?

We use A+ Ocean Saline Removal. It was created by John Hashey in the 1980’s and was the world’s first all-natural saline removal product. A+ Ocean all-natural tattoo removal solution continually yields outstanding results on the most difficult procedures.

How does it work?

The area to be lightened is tattooed using almost the same process as traditional tattooing. A topical anesthetic is applied to the tattooed area, and then a device similar to an ink-gun deposits the A+Plus Ocean Removal solution by puncturing the dermis or top layer of the skin. Implanting the solution into the skin breaks up the healed pigment and begins to lift the pigment out of the skin by osmosis. In this process, molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.

What happens with your permanent or semi-permanent makeup is that the pigment is slowly pulled to the surface of the skin and heals into a scab. When the scab falls off, that pigment falls off with it, leaving a lightened tattoo. Skin cells are created in our lowest level of the epidermis, then rise to the top. As new skin cells are created, old skin cells die and slough off.  Because of this process, you will continue to see lightening after the scab has fallen off as your skin goes through its natural shedding cycle.

What’s the difference between saline and laser removal?

With laser removal, the laser beam used must be specific to the type of color to be removed for it to successfully break up the ink. That ink is then entirely absorbed into your body. With saline, the majority of the ink is broken up, then lifted up and out of the skin’s surface.

Laser tattoo machines can only break up certain colors of ink; for instance, white reflects light so a laser cannot be used to target white ink. Saline works on all colors of ink.

Laser removal and saline PMU removal both take several sessions with a PMU artist; however, laser removal sessions are a lot more costly and certain colors may still be visible once all of the treatments are completed.

What are the benefits of saline removal?

There are many reasons why our clients opt for saline removal when it comes to permanent and semi-permanent makeup.

  • The lightening process has fewer risks than laser and other forms of treatment for PMU.
  • It’s less painful than other methods of removal.
  • It’s typically less expensive than other methods of removal.
  • It does not typically result in scarring, blistering, hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation.
  • The treatment is safe for all skin types.
  • Skin can be re-tattooed once the treated area has healed completely.
  • It works with all pigment colors.
What are the risks associated with saline removal?

As with all similar procedures, there are some risks to be considered when deciding whether saline PMU removal is right for you.

  • During the procedure, patients will experience some bruising and minor bleeding in the treated area.
  • Hypo-pigmentation, where skin loses color, can happen when melanocytes (pigment cells that produce melanin) are damaged and stop producing the melanin that creates your skin color. This is typically temporary but may be permanent.
  • Hyperpigmentation, where skin becomes a darker color, can happen when melanocytes (pigment cells that produce melanin) start producing extra melanin; the body stores and deposits it, which creates a darker skin color. This is typically temporary but may be permanent.
  • It may take months for any fading to actually occur.
  • Treated areas will be sore and tender for a few days after treatment.
  • Like any type of treatment that breaks the skin, there is a risk of infection.
